As you know, our power, light, and heat was out for a period of 11 days, thanks to “Franken-Sandy-Storm”.
Now, thankfully, all is normal again… except our Verizon FIOS line came loose during the subsequent snow and ice storm, and is down across the back yard. It is scheduled to be reconnected to the house by Thursday or Friday.
Until then, we have no home phone, TV, or Internet.
Of these, I would miss the Internet most… if not for my ability to remain connected (and continue feeding the Blog-Beast) via smart phone. That also takes care of phone communications, leaving television as the only thing still completely lacking.
(…Though, there are some who would be quick to point out that “television was completely lacking” LONG before the storms!)
It is simultaneously surprising – and not surprising at all – just how much I DO NOT MISS TV!
Most of it is annoying noise, and it’s nice to sit around and TALK for a change! It was even fun to listen to the Jets and Giants football games on RADIO this past Sunday!
Beyond sports, anything I really want to see is on DVD anyway! …And Verizon’s downed lines cannot stop me from enjoying DVDs, anytime the “Entertainment –Jones” strikes at me!
Thus far, I’ve enjoyed programs from THESE DVDs, and do not give a hoot if TV EVER comes back!
|These LAST TWO are particularly good for an "Entertainment-JONES"... Get it?|
Esther, on the other hand, can’t wait for TV's return… and that’s what makes the world (and marriages) go round!
